Ok so yesterday I had major surgery.  I had a bone & gum graft to my upper jaw.  Don't read on if you don't want to hear yucky stuff.  They cracked open my upper jaw to insert some more bone and cut gum from the inner part to put it on the outer part to support my jaw for another surgery coming up in about 6 months.  Then they will insert implants so I can have teeth that are just like regular teeth, except they don't die and fall out!!!  Here is the back story....My old orthodontist moved my teeth too fast and got too close to the bone and it killed the roots to my two front teeth!  a couple of years later, my teeth started to get loose, so the dentist pulled them out for me.  So for 2 years I had to get ready for my surgery (that I just had).  I had some trouble with getting my A1C down because of other medication that I take....and I absolutely have to take it,  so I ended up taking daily shots and medication to lower my blood sugar levels because I am diabetic.  Anyway, I finally got it down and was able to have the surgery for my teeth.  There will be another surgery to follow in 6 months and I am down for a couple of weeks. I will still be designing for gottapixel's contest, but everything else will stop.  I am doing fine, they said the surgery went well and a bled very little.  I haven't had much pain because I take the pain pills on time and don't let it get painful.  I am very puffy in the upper lip & cheek area.  Yes, I look like a chipmunk. We will take pics to scrap about it!  My scrap line could be Chipmunk Cheeks: my surgery.  I'm seeing the layout already......
